Template:Superherobox Jade Nova (Frankie Rayner) is a fictional superhero in the Amalgam Comics universe. She is an amalgamation of Marvel Comics' Nova (Frankie Raye) and DC Comics' Jade (Jennie-Lynn Hayden) and Green Lantern (Kyle Rayner), with possibly a bit of Fire (Beatriz Da Costa).

Publication history

Jade Nova sole appearance was in Doctor Strangefate #1, which was later collected in the trade paperback The Amalgam Age of Comics: The DC Comics Collection (1996; ISBN 1563892952). Within the metafictional backstory provided in Doctor Strangefate, Jade Nova debuted in Tales of Strangefate #203, and later in Tales of Strangefate #210-213, as part of the "Jade Inferno" storyline.

Fictional character biography

Jade Nova was rescued by Doctor Strangefate from Mephisatanus sometime in the past, and now finds herself indebted to him. Doctor Strangefate, fearing that Access (Axel Asher) will break up the Amalgam Universe into its original two universes, sends Jade Nova, along with the Skulk and the White Witch, to capture him. Jade thinks Access is " threatening as Santa Claus...", though she also thinks of him as "handsome". However, Access' teleporting abilities mean that Jade Nova and Skulk are unsuccessful in capturing him.

Powers and abilities

Jade Nova has Green Lantern symbols on her belt-buckle and her ring, suggesting that she has ties to Iron Lantern. Her ring can project energy beams, and can turn her body into mystical green flames.
